Bipolar stigma is real

When I introduce myself to people the flow of the conversation generally does not start with, “Hi, my name is Brittney. I’m a Gemini, I like short walks in the woods, I have a very sensitive aversion to high pitch noises and an unhealthy Harry Potter obsession. I prefer cats over dogs but I also … Continue reading Bipolar stigma is real

Poetry for every mood

It's officially National Poetry Month. Poetry seems to either be loved or hated by avid readers and nonreaders alike. You either love the idea of short prose with strong emphasis or you feel that's it too forced and anti-climatic.

Ask. Rinse. Repeat.

Ask. Rinse. Repeat. My daughter, you just have to know that before having a child with ADHD I always said I was the type of person who hated to repeat themselves. But now, we have a process.

The vacations we won’t take

I have to take a minute to mourn something. One of the first things my daughter's therapist told me when we started seeing her three years ago was that I needed to mourn and let go the idea of the "average" family. The "typical" family. The "normal" family. I mention this whole conversation in You're … Continue reading The vacations we won’t take

More important than a homeschool curriculum

(This post contains affiliate links because we like food) Every couple of months I have an epiphany. That I am not living in the moment. That I am planning too much, organizing too much, not letting enough of our lives happen organically. It's easy to say, "that's it, from now I will let the chips … Continue reading More important than a homeschool curriculum

Book Review: “You’re Going to be Fine” by Brittney D. Herz

I can’t express how honored I was to read this review. My Bipolar Mind has been a great resource for me and I appreciate the time Samantha put into reading my book and expressing her opinion on it. It’s still somewhat surreal to read messages from people reaching out to me, or reviews like this, and knowing that our story is resonating with so many people.
You’re Going to be Fine is still available on Amazon.com.

Book Review: “You’re Going to be Fine” by Britteny D. Herz


You’re Going to be Fine, by author Brittney D. Herz, is a captivating and heart-wrenching true story about juvenile mental health and the impact it can have on the child as well as their parents and loved ones. While the author, Brittney D. Herz, writes the story she constantly reminds us that this is truly her daughter, Gigi’s, story. This book makes your heart ache for this little girl who just wonders why she isn’t like all the other children. Unless you have ever struggled with mental illness yourself or have a loved one who has gone through it, you may not fully understand the agony that this family has gone through. However, Brittney does an excellent job at talking her reader through Gigi’s journey; putting you right there in the same room as them.
